February 14 is typically chock-full of corny boxed chocolates and sappy cards — cue the eye-roll, right? But, this year, why fight the cheesiness? After all, it won't hurt to embrace a little seasonal cheer, and that's especially true when it comes to your style. However, we aren't suggesting that you pull on a sweater with an enormous heart stamped on it or slip into that sultry, red dress everyone else will be wearing. And, while we totally adore the sexy-subtle approach
, we recommend opting instead for those classic going-out looks that are just as timeless.
So, to help you put together that perfect ensemble for your V-Day plans — whether you’re celebrating with a fancy prix fixe dinner with your longtime lover, heading to a girls’ night filled with drinks and dancing, or staying put with pinot and a movie — we dreamed up five foolproof outfit ideas. Plus, they all come straight from the spring runways. Ranging from a lip-emblazoned Saint Laurent dress to a super-sexy pink Preen look, each bit of inspiration ahead will have you pulling out all the stops and leaving your Valentine's Day companion seriously impressed. And, when it comes to your style, why not
put your heart into it?
